Just got back from lunch and what do I find on my desk? A box of macarons from the Sugar Bear. Can't wait to give them a try.
Oh, and how did they get here? A guest of his who lives in the next town dropped them off.

Guest was bribed, though... offered her a 6 pack or a jar of jam... she chose the jam. Tells you how nice my jam is as well. I did give her one for the road to enjoy though.
How'd they look in my new box? How'd they taste?
You should see my facebook comments on them... someone last week contemplated a three hour drive to pick some up.

It's a very nice presentation in the box! Haven't tried any yet. (I went to lunch, I'm still stuffed from that.)

What a wonderful gift!! We have some VERY Special people here. I did not get a box of those specialties, but Sugar Bear helped me more than I could believe when SB was up to the ears with stuff and spent about 2 hours on the phone helping me with a computer problem. It was also a totally unexpected and therefore doubly wonderful gift.

Told you then, it wasn't a problem at all. You were a lot more patient than my parents. They never listen to what I tell them.

I read JB's comment at a Conference today and burst out laughing - had a few odd looks in my direction. If i am MORE patient than your parents, OH MY!!!

And Sugar Bear has been helping me with our cruise in April!.
And Sugar Bear has 60 days to go until he is on the ocean blue himself.... I haven't had an honest day's off since April! Next year, I'm marking two days out and taking a break after labour day.

I feel your pain! Us too. Actually, I was just able to take 24 hours away. Not a true day off, but the closest I'm going to get until a family wedding in October.

Hearing from those of you in Destinations, I am grateful I am in Podunk. It is not often I have to get up at 4:30 to make a 6 AM breakfast before flying out the door at 6:30 to go to a Conference. Dozed through the morning opener and thru the middle of the last workshop. Was widea awake for the other 2 though. Tomorrow is a replay.
